  • [HanCinema's Actor Spotlight] Kim Myeong-min

    Personal taste accounts for a large part of a person's preferences when it comes to art and entertainment. Our positive or negative emotions can make us blind to or more forgiving of flaws or then make us see flaws that are not there. When it comes to actors, everyone has favorites and those favorites are rarely the same. However, there are some performers who are good enough to both have and deserve the acknowledgment, if not admiration, of most viewers who experience their work. Kim Myeong-min seems to belong in that type of performers,...More
  • [Guest Post] The Great Kim Myeong-min

    2014/01/11, Source,
    By Eve Berliner In a transmutation of infinite mystery, he seeps into the interior of the character and disappears into its burning essence. He is the mind. He is the body. He is the history. He is Beethoven in the guise of Maestro Kang, his hair flying in the wind, the majesty upon him ("Beethoven Virus"). He is Jang Joon-hyuk, the brilliant surgeon, relentless, amoral, the genius with the heart of ice and arrogance who leaves you haunted and weeping ("White Tower"). He is the beautiful young man, Jong-woo, brave and ironic, stricken by Lou Gehrig's Disease ("Closer to Heaven"), in a state of dying as he falls deeply in love,...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Sorum"

    The apartment complex that is the backdrop of most of the action in "Sorum" is a dank, unsettling, somewhat discouraging abode. It's the kind of rundown building people who don't have a lot of money end up staying in. Ugly stains, rough edges, and random litter abound everywhere in the building. The walls are an unsightly eyesore- nothing grotesque or horrifying, just kind of ugly. And yet, there's a certain character to it that's a bit appealing. Maybe not so much as a building designed to be pretty, but more so than boring white walls anyway. That paragraph about as much sums up the film's narrative focus, too. Yong-Hyun (played by Kim Myeong-min) moves into this apartment building, and...something ensues. I'm honestly not sure what, exactly,...More
  • Kim Myeong-min: 'I Just Run After Skipping My Meals'

    2012/01/06, Source,
    Actor Kim Myeong-min will appear in the new movie "Pacemaker" that will be released during the Lunar New Year holiday by playing the protagonist named Joo Man Ho. Kim has become a star actor as his previous dramas such as "Immortal Admiral Yi Sun-shin" (2004), "White Tower" (2007), and "Beethoven Virus" were hits, but his appearances in the movies have not achieved great recognition. The melodrama movie "Closer to Heaven" (2007) attracted about two million audience members, but the results of other movies such as "Open City" (2008, 1.63 million audience members) and "Man of Vendetta" (2010, 1.03 million audience members) were far below expectations,...More

This is the first korean movie that I have ever watched. And I loved it!!! The atmosphere in this movie is very dark and it does not need special effects to scare you. Good actor performances too. Overall a great horror movie.
